|Case Study: Team Development
|Client: Attune Consulting ( SAP Channel Partner)
Attune Consulting provides vertical SAP solutions to the apparel and footwear industry, globally. They are located in the Americas, UK, Europe, and across Asia. Each location is a profit centre. This is a relatively new specialised SAP application and there is a lot of expertise and knowledge to be leveraged across all countries so efficient and effective systems can be developed for clients. Sage’s challenge was to weld the key players from every global location into a team, during the Attune Global Conference. There were over 200 delegates. The required outcome was to build an esprit-de-corps and team operating processes between the delegates in order for them develop the means and commitment to positively harness their diversity and build a blueprint for an effective global team.
The Sage Solution
Sage structured 10 outdoors activities that encompassed the core elements for a High Performing Team and then carefully organised the delegates into 10 teams that were a cross-section of people from the different geographic locations. We then rotated the teams through the activities. Each team recorded their experiences and learning. We then structured a plenary activity for them to demonstrate the learning, followed by a “World Café” where they developed their blueprint for global teamwork.
- A bond between the participants that enabled a knowledge sharing system that was in place to actually work.
- Strengthened relationships between regional members that enabled resource sharing on large projects.
- The confidence of smaller offices to bid for large projects.
